The Heart

Kokoro

directed by Kon Ichikawa
Japan, 1955

Synopsis

Brimful with brooding psychological torment, Kokoro is vintage Kon Ichikawa. Based on a novel by Natsume Soseki, the director foregrounds its themes of individual isolation and social estrangement, most notably in a central protagonist stricken by existential demons and stranded by changing times.
